JAWS Topic: Composing Facebook Page Posts

Getting Started

Go to m.facebook.com and log into your Facebook account.

After you’re logged in, open the links list (Insert + F7) and press P to find Pages. Press enter.

This will load a new page with Facebook Pages you like and Facebook Pages you’ve created. Open the links list (Insert + F7) and hit the first letter of your Facebook page until you find it in the list. Press enter.

This will load another new page with your Facebook Page. Once again, open the links list (Insert + F7) and press P to find Publish. Press enter.

Create a Post

 

This will load another new page with a blank post form. Open the form field list and find the Write something field. Press enter.

Type your post.

If your post is just going to be text, you may press enter to finish composing and submit the post. However, if you’d like to add a location or an image, see below.

Adding a Location

After you’ve filled out the write something field, press tab to move to the location field. Press enter.

This will load a new page where you’ll find a location to include in your post. Open the form field list (Insert + F5) and find the search edit field. Press enter.

Put in the location you’d like to tag. When you are looking for an address, keep in the mind that you can only tag locations that Facebook knows about – you won’t be able to tag your home or other locations that Facebook hasn’t indexed. That being said, you can always tag a town or a state and most businesses, organizations, and public places will be indexed. When you’ve entered your desired location, press enter.

The page will reload with results of indexed locations matching what you typed. You may wish to navigate these by opening the heading list (Insert + F6) and selecting the Results heading. From there you can navigate returned results by pressing tab. The results are marked up as links, so you may also interact with your results using the links list (Insert + F7). When you find your desired location, press enter.

This will return you to your post. If your post is just going to be text and a location, navigate to the post button (by using tab or of the form field list (Insert + F5)) and press enter to submit the post.

Adding Photos

After you’ve filled out the location field (or decided to skip it), press tab to move to the photo field. Press enter.

This will load a new page where you’ll be able to select images from your computer to include in your post. Open the form field list (Insert + F5) and find the unlabeled edit field. Press space bar.

This will return you to your post. If your post is just going to be text and a location, navigate to the post button (by using tab or of the form field list (Insert + F5) and press enter to submit the post.

This will launch the Windows File Explorer dialog. You’ll interact with the dialog in exactly the same manner as you do in other contexts (such as saving and opening documents). Use the file explorer dialog to navigate to the image file you’d like to upload.

Navigate to the Preview button by tabbing or using the form field list (Insert + F5).

This will return you to your post. If your post is complete, navigate to the post button (by using tab or of the form field list (Insert + F5)) and press enter to submit the post. If you’d like to add additional photos, you can replicate the process we just went over. You can only add a single image at a time. To add additional images, open the form field list (Insert + F5) and use the Add Photos button. If you’d like to remove your uploaded photo, open the form field list (Insert + F5) and select the X button.
